CAPW News 3/22: Card for April 15, CAPW Star on Smackdown this week, and more!

Cleveland All-Pro Wrestling News: March 22, 2007


Cleveland All-Pro Wrestling returns to the famed Turner’s Hall, located at 7325 Guthrie Ave. in Cleveland, on Sunday afternoon April 15. Doors open at 2 p.m. for our belltime of 3 p.m. This WILL be a taping for CAPW TV on Sports Time Ohio, so bring your signs, banners, and enthusiasm, and be prepared to have your image available in nearly 3 million homes in the state of Ohio, and nationwide on select systems. Tickets are available in advance at any of our ticket outlets, and also at the door the afternoon of the event. Get ready for three solid hours of the best professional wrestling in the area: Cleveland All-Pro Wrestling.

We can now confirm the following matches taking place as part of the April 15 card…

CAPW Heavyweight Title: Tracy Smothers vs. Buff Bagwell
When presented with recent complaints from CAPW wrestlers and fans over the recent actions of Tracy Smothers (including, but not limited to, his vicious attack of Gregory Iron), CAPW management made the decision to remove The Wild Eyed Southern Boy from scheduled tag team competition and ORDERED Smothers to defend his championship on April 15. His opponent is a man who’s held CAPW gold before, a man who’s battled Smothers with CAPW gold on the line in wars that saw no clear winner. Smothers will have to defend against the multi-time former WCW World Tag Team Champion Buff Bagwell! Bagwell has been a major player when it comes to CAPW title matches for several years now, and Buff Daddy feels its long overdue to have gold around his waist once again. Will the sneaky Smothers be able to survive another title defense?

CAPW Tag Title Ladder Match: Faith in Nothing vs. Irish Airborne vs. Q&A
It’s the news that fans and insider alike are still buzzing about, as CAPW’s ultra-competitive tag title division gets taken to the next level. For the past several months, Irish Airborne and Q&A have fought amongst themselves in an attempt to crown a clear #1 contender to the gold. Meanwhile, champions Faith in Nothing have been on a mission to begin a legacy of dominance and defeat all top challengers soundly and decisively. None of the three teams has been able to accomplish any of their goals, thanks to the intense infighting and brawling that’s interrupted seemingly every tag team title and contender match in recent months. The only way to settle the issue is to take the rules, and throw them out the window and place all 3 teams in the ring at once. And as a result of Q&A’s attempted assault on the other two teams while using a ladder, it was only natural to raise the stakes further and make it a Ladder Match. Six men will go all-out, risk life and limb for the glory that comes with being called champion, but only one team will survive. There WILL be a clear and decisive winner April 15 in Turner’s Hall!

CAPW Television Title: Jason Bane vs. Johnny Gargano
Johnny Gargano has had a mixed bag of success lately. While he’s fighting to stay alive in the Junior Heavyweight Division, he experienced a feat of success very few in the business get to achieve, wrestling on international television on WWE Smackdown. However, Gargano has never, anywhere, been in the ring with the likes of 6’8 300+ pound Jason Bane. Bane is a non-stop wrecking machine and continues to plow through every contender lined up in front of him. Will Bane add another tally to the list or will the crafty Gargano be able to lay claim to another CAPW Championship?


Next week in our CAPW Newsline, we’ll announce more matches signed for our April 15 card, including Zach Gowen’s next Jr. Heavyweight Title defense! Also, we’ll go in depth in analyzing the upcoming Three Way Tag Team Title Ladder Match!


CAPW’s national, and now international, representation continues, as one of Cleveland’s brightest stars makes his broadcast television debut THIS Friday night on the CW Network on WWE Smackdown. Former Jr. Heavyweight Champion Johnny Gargano will be on the broadcast and WILL be competing in one-on-one action against Montel Vontavious Porter. However, sources say it may not quite be the same look Johnny Gargano we’re used to seeing, as MVP tries to send a message to WWE US Champion Chris Benoit before their upcoming match at WrestleMania 23. Regardless of our personal opinions of Mr. Gargano, all of us here at CAPW congratulate him for this accomplishment and recognition of his talents. One source tells us Gargano has already begun bragging about the appearance to anyone and everyone who will listen, including complete strangers on the street, despite the fact it hasn’t even aired yet.
